The Linux Experience

Linux

conradmiguel.com: I am an eight-year Windows user. In short, I grew up with Microsoft and other proprietary software. It is only at this stage of my life that I decided to go open-source. It’s now almost a week since I moved to Linux. And yeah, as I always say, it was fun — really fun.

Could governments effectively subsidize open-source development?

Filed under
OSS

cnet.com: At the Utah Open Source Conference yesterday I presented a dilemma. Briefly, the idea is that as open-source buyers grow comfortable with open source they will stop spending money on open source. This leads to tragedy of the commons-type problems and a difficulty in encouraging the creation of more open source.

Opera grasps at straws with latest IE criticism

Filed under
Software

blogs.zdnet.com: Let me say from the outset that I was not a fan of Opera Software’s antitrust sabre-rattling a few months back over Microsoft’s lack of standards compliancy with its browser. But Opera’s latest complaints about Internet Explorer (IE) 8 make Opera look even more like a company that’s gone off the deep end.

Moving from Mac to Ubuntu: Why I’m switching

Filed under
Ubuntu

meganmcdermott.com: When I started my new job in October the computer that I had to use was a Power Mac G5. This wasn’t my choosing - the guy before me really liked macs and had the whole office switch over several years ago. I was allowed to get a new laptop as well, and chose a Lenovo Thinkpad T61 and installed Ubuntu.

The 7 Best Closed-Source Apps for Linux

Filed under
Software

intranetjournal.com: With all of the noise going back and forth about how open source software is "better" for the end user, I am of the mind that this is clearly in the eyes of the beholder. I can think of a number of instances where the closed source alternative still outshines the FOSS alternatives.

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
